KW Colour Inspiration #44

What a pretty colour combo Kristina picked this week! Since I have played with similar colour combos recently I thought I'd pick a stamp set I wouldn't normally use these colours with, and I went with Touch of Nature.. yes, Touch of Nature two weeks in a row for a KW challenge! Since it is retired at the end of the month Imaking sure it knows it is loved wink. I may have over-done the ferns a little, but this is pretty much how I saw it in my head from the start. The butterfly was stamped off before stamping on the Whisper White so I had a paler second-generation impression.

All supplies by Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Pretty In Pink, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Stamp Set: Touch of Nature
Inks: Pretty In Pink, Close To Cocoa, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Berry Bliss DSP, Pretty In Pink tafetta ribbon, Earth Elements & Neutrals buttons, paper piercer, cutter kit
Show watched while creating: Aus v SAf test cricket

Hi Carol, Your card is lovely. Thanks for commenting on my blog. All the stamps in the set match the paper exactly. It retired in August and the paper was new in January. Go figure. The set is Kind Thoughts. You may still have it in your book. It is a grogeous set!
